He was calling cops on people he said were spitting at his car and wearing T-shirts he found offensive, and try harder to not be stupid: no one calls this polished turd to have him call 911.
HAHAHAAHAHAHAHAHAHAH!
You are wrong. The FACT is that the residents were told to call George if they saw anything suspicious and at that point George would call the non emergency police line..

The video of Trayvon in the 711 is so telling. He looks totally suspicious with the clothes he was wearing along with going back and fourth in the store. He definitely does not look like the young boy in the photographs the media was showing
Yes it i telling. It shows a young black kid who doesn't know he has only minutes to live, doesn't know there is a madman out there waiting to murder him.

You still harping on the pictures in the media from over a year ago? Do you really think that has anything to do with the murder of Trayvon?

I think these pictures kind of tell their own story. One that is a) underreported and b) not politically correct to notice because it is the usual black on white crime.

If Trayvon had a brother, this is what he'd look like:

In fact, the pedophile was calling 911 line.

And I would change my alias again if you want to continue to insist the 200+ residents were instructed to call the pedophile before they called the cops.

Zimmerman did everyone a favor by getting rid of another wanna be gangsta. You want to like like one then be ready to die like one.

Self-appointed, huh?
"Wendy Dorival, former coordinator of the Sanford Police Department's neighborhood watch program, testified how she had worked with Zimmerman to set up a watch in his neighborhood.
When asked by prosecutor John Guy if neighborhood watch participants should follow or engage with suspicious people, she said no.
"They are the eyes and ears of law enforcement," Dorival said. "They're not supposed to take matters into their own hands."
Similarly, Donald O'Brien, president of Zimmerman's homeowners association, said it was his understanding that neighborhood watch members are supposed to "stay at a safe distance" and "let the police handle it."
But Dorival said she was impressed with Zimmerman's professionalism and dedication to his community.
"He seemed like he really wanted to make changes in his community, to make it better," she said."
Well, it wasn't a term the judge struck down.

So it's still in play.
Yeah

Sweating doesn't mean you're guilty. Evidence does. And there is no evidence presented so far that can prove Zimmerman did anything wrong.
I'm sure that if Zim didn't have his firearm to protect himself and Martin was on trial for murdering Zimmerman, he wouldn't have a drop of sweat. What does that tell you?
Well... there is that pesky dead body people keep glossing over.

Zimmerman Trial Day 2 – Analysis of State’s Witnesses
Posted by Andrew Branca
Tuesday, June 25, 2013 at 9:04pm

Today can only be characterized as an utter debacle for the prosecution in Florida v. Zimmerman. Besides the testimony of a couple of highly professional law enforcement witnesses, the testimony of the the other State witnesses ranged from signing George Zimmerman’s praises, to acknowledging the utility of following a suspicious person from a distance, to being utterly discredited by razor sharp cross-examination of the defense.

Before we even get to the disaster that was the State’s witnesses, however, we first have to discuss this morning’s hearing and the extent to which it evanescent is the State’s case against George Zimmerman.

State: Zimmerman Is So Good, He Must Be Bad

Following on a disagreement between the parties yesterday, before the jury was seated the Court held a hearing on whether to admit into evidence a half-dozen or so calls made by Zimmerman to the police in the six months leading up to the shooting.

In each of the calls Zimmerman was playing the diligent Neighborhood Watch role, calling the non-emergency number (as trained) to report a suspicious person in the neighborhood. There is not the slightest suggestion of misconduct, ill will, hatred, etc. in any of the recordings.
